Hospitality set for a booming weekend as punters flock to pub gardens

first_imgTripadvisor-owned TheFork, formerly known as Bookatable, has reported seeing more than double the number of bookings this weekend in comparison to the ‘Super Saturday’ weekend on the 4th and 5th of July last year. whatsapp whatsapp “The most expensive item to a restaurant manager is an empty table because it costs the same amount empty as it does full. Empty tables are also unlikely to be filled at such short notice, as the industry places greater emphasis on bookings over walk-ins in its post-Covid recovery.”  (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images) Also Read: Hospitality set for a booming weekend as punters flock to pub gardens London bookings are up 220 per cent this weekend, according to a hospitality bookings app, as pub gardens finally opened to customers on Monday.   Millie Turner Show Comments ▼ Hospitality set for a booming weekend as punters flock to pub gardens With pub garden making up around 25 per cent of a pubs capacity, pubs need to be operating at around 80 per cent capacity to be truly ‘fully booked’, the spokesperson warned. “The public appetite to get back to pubs and restaurants is impressive. However, a risk for restaurants right now is people simply not turning up,” Hooykaas, added. “‘No-shows’ will hinder post-Covid hospitality recovery.” (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images) Also Read: Hospitality set for a booming weekend as punters flock to pub gardens center_img (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images) And while pubs may be ‘fully booked’ this weekend, a spokesperson for the British Beer and Pub Association noted that it is important to remember bookings are only allowed for outside space – if pubs have it. Friday 16 April 2021 12:14 pm Booking across the rest of the country, bookings have surged 105 per cent, signalling a sigh of relief for the hospitality sector and socialites alike. “Bookings in London alone are rocketing, up 220 per cent for this weekend compared to the ‘Super Saturday’ weekend last year, when hospitality re-opened after the first lockdown,” UK managing director at TheFork, Patrick Hooykaas, said. Despite the soaring bookings, the booming weekend may not be all it is cracked up to be as punters have been caught making bookings and not attending.

News / Marshall Islands calls on IMO delegates to get serious about curbing combat shipping’s rising emissions

first_img Marshall Islands environment minister David Paul has urged the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to issue a clear signal that it will take action against climate change ahead of its key environmental meeting this week.Mr Paul described claims that climate action would dent economic growth in the shipping sector as “completely and utterly false”.“In the next days, the IMO will determine whether Marshallese children born today will have the chance of a secure and prosperous life or will have to leave the land of their ancestors and set sail across the oceans to an uncertain future,” said Mr Paul.“This is scientific fact. If the shipping sector were a country, it would already be the world’s sixth largest climate polluter.”Responsible for around 3% of global emissions, the shipping sector could see this share increase with the IMO estimating a 250% increase in shipping emissions by 2050 if action is not taken.Instead, Mr Paul said the sector needed to reach peak emissions by 2020 and then rapidly decline if it was to have “any hope” of staying within the Paris Agreement temperature limits.“The technologies exist now to allow shipping to transition to clean and sustainable growth,” Mr Paul continued.“Industry has clearly stated it wants to act, and so do shipping customers; they need a clear policy signal from this body to do so.”His comments come as the IMO gathers in London for the 72nd session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC).The event is due to culminate in the UN body unveiling its strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), although there are fears this will fail to meet the Paris requirements.In a position paper, the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF) expressed concern the IMO would fail to confirm emission caps in line with a 1.5-degree global temperature rise.“It is not expected a hard 1.5 degrees “line” will receive much, if any, support at MEPC 72 and that a compromise position will need to be considered,” said the paper.“At a minimum any compromise must protect the possibility of achieving 1.5 degrees C and the Paris Agreement goal of ‘pursuing efforts’.”New Zealand’s associate minister for transport Julie Anne Genter additionally called on the IMO to be “ambitious” and implement appropriate measures.“With end of the negotiations imminent, we urge the IMO not to miss the opportunity to adopt a workable and effective strategy to bring rising GHGs from shipping under control,” said Ms Genter.“The IMO strategy needs to be implemented as soon as possible and it needs to apply to all IMO member states and all ships equally, regardless of which state a ship is registered in.”The Marshall Islands is the world’s third largest ship registry – only slightly behind second-placed Liberia – with Mr Paul describing the country as “totally reliant” on shipping for trade.He said he “doubted” any country had as great an interest in the MEPC outcome, restating that a trade off between climate action and sustainable economic growth of shipping was “false”.Despite this, the IMO’s initial strategy still contains provisions that disproportionate negative economic impacts had to be identified and addressed before implementing measures to tackle climate change.“We are willing to work with all countries to improve the text, but I have to be clear we’ll very publicly dissociate from an outcome that does not contain an explicit quantified level of ambition consistent with a possibility of achieving the Paris Agreement temperature goals,” he continued.“I will not go home to my children, and my country’s children, endorsing an outcome from the IMO that fails to face up to the greatest threat of the century.” By Alexander Whiteman 09/04/2018 © Jivko Mladenovlast_img read more

Canada’s financial services would benefit from Trans-Pacific Partnership

first_img U.S. action on climate benefits banks, asset managers: Moody’s Related news While much of the deal focuses on goods sectors, on the services side, “the interesting sectors for Canada are financial services and business services, which make fairly significant gains in cross-border exports,” the report says. However, “the major expansion in services is in the non-traded sectors through indirect income effects,” the report adds. Overall, the report projects that, if the deal is ratified, it would boost Canadian household income by $485 million in 2018 (measured in 2016 dollars), rising to about $3 billion by 2035, “when the full impacts of the TPP have been realized.” This represents a 0.02% increase in real GDP in 2018, rising to about 0.08% in 2035 The primary winners, the report says, would be major gains in trade for agricultural produce, whereas trade sensitive sectors, such as the dairy and automotive sectors, would see a decline in shipments under the deal. “Canada, along with Malaysia and New Zealand, make tangible gains in terms of exports resulting from the TPP,” the report says. “However, as a trade deal, the TPP mainly benefits the United States, Vietnam, and Japan.” Conversely, if Canada does not ratify the agreement, the cost to Canada would be minor in the short term, $290 million, rising to about $1.7 billion by 2035, the report finds. The main sectors that would lose in this scenario would be financial services and business services, along with agricultural products. Sectors that are expected to see losses under the TPP, such as the auto sector, cannot avoid declines by Canada staying out of the deal, the report says. “What our analysis suggests is that even ambitious, so-called deep and comprehensive agreements like the TPP have limited traction in what is an already highly open global economy, which features many parallel processes chipping away at irritants to trade and investment,” the report concludes.

Howe Institute Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social mediacenter_img James Langton The financial services sector would benefit from the trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and stands to suffer if the deal is not ratified, according to a report from the C.D. Howe Institute published on Thursday. The TPP would likely have “a modest impact on Canada” overall, the Toronto-based think tank says in an announcement accompanying the report’s release, with some sectors benefitting from the deal, while others will see negative effects. Moreover, Canada would likely incur modest losses from not ratifying the deal. High debt levels threaten banks’ strong results: Fitch G7 tax pledge may be upstaged by CBDC worklast_img read more

Feds name members to new disability advisory committee

first_img Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Rudy Mezzetta Companies Canada Revenue Agency The government announced in late November that it was re-instating the DAC after it had been disbanded in 2006. It already announced that the committee would be chaired by Frank Vermaeten, CRA assistant commissioner and Karen Cohen, the CEO of the Canadian Psychological Association. The DAC members, who sit on the committee on a voluntary basis, consist of individuals with disabilities, qualified health practitioners, advocates from the disability and Indigenous communities, and tax professionals and lawyers. They are: Sherri Torjman, vice chairwoman of the committee, former vice president, Caledon Institute of Social Policy, from Ontario Laurier Beachell, Baker Law, from Manitoba Gary Birch, Neil Squire Foundation, from British Columbia Dr. Jeff Blackmer, Canadian Medical Association, from Ontario Lembi Buchanan, Coalition for Disability Tax Credit Reform, from B.C.

Read: Feds to reinstate disability advisory committee In addition to the committee member names, the government also announced that the CRA will return to using a pre-May 2017 clarification letter for disability tax credit (DTC) applications for life-sustaining therapy. A revised clarification letter issued in May led to concerns, and some controversy, when it appeared that individuals with Type 1 diabetes might have difficulty accessing the DTC. The government said that the CRA would be proactively reviewing applications that had been denied since May, for which the CRA relied on the revised clarification letter. Individuals would not have to submit new or additional information unless contacted by the CRA. “This decision [to return to the pre-May 2017 clarification letter] will allow the DAC to formulate recommendations on the CRA’s administrative practices, including clarification letters, through broader, more comprehensive stakeholder consultations,” stated a press release announcing the composition of the DAC. “As indicated previously, no change has been made to the eligibility criteria for the DTC.” Photo copyright: jiawangkun/123RF The federal government on Friday announced the names of the 12 members of the recently re-instated disability advisory committee (DAC), the mandate of which will be to help to provide guidance on how the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) can better deliver services to disabled Canadians.

If You Want To Win The Lottery, First Buy A Ticket

first_imgHome Wine Business Editorial E Column If You Want To Win The Lottery, First Buy A TicketWine Business EditorialE ColumnIf You Want To Win The Lottery, First Buy A TicketBy Elizabeth Slater – March 4, 2015 31 0 Previous articleGuarachi Family Wines Introduces Sun Chase Pinot Noir 2013Next articleExpert Public Speaker Back to Coach in Wine Country Elizabeth Slater Advertisement TAGSE ColumnElizabeth SlaterfeaturedIn Short Direct Marketing Linkedin Share Twittercenter_img Email ReddIt Facebook AdvertisementA good article on Business Dictionary.com talks about developing an action plan to accomplish goals. It’s important to have an action plan for every goal you have listed, whether it’s personal or business. Some of you may remember that I have talked about my goal of winning the lottery. My action plan to make this happen is to buy a ticket.No ticket, no win, it’s that simple. Of course I may never win the lottery, but at least by having an action plan I have given myself a fighting chance.So look at your goals for each of the different areas of your business and if each one of your goals doesn’t have specific action plans, then it’s time to add them under each one of your goals. If you haven’t stated your goals for each of the areas of your business rather than an overall goal (To be successful), now is the time to do it.You also want to be specific with your goals. If, for example, you are planning an event, you need to have a clear picture of what your goals are, such as how much product you want to sell and how many people you want to attend and how many new people you want to add to your mailing list. Once you have got the goals sorted, then add details, such as we want to sell products totaling $5,000 dollars to the 130 people who attend the event, 40 of whom will be added to our mailing list.Your goals should be realistic but make them a bit of a stretch. After all you want everyone to feel good about having reached the goals. Once you have your goals, let everyone who is involved know the goals and get them involved in making an action plans. Include deadlines as part of the action plan. Keep track of your progress along the way, to make sure you are on targetIf these are plans for longer-term goals, create rewards along the way as certain objectives are reached. We all perform better when rewards are part of the project.A tip of the glass from me to youE columnby Elizabeth “E” Slater, In Short Direct MarketingA recognized expert in the fields of direct marketing and sales in the wine marketplace.
